White Tea - China Pai Mu Tan Tea is a sweet, delicate infusion. It consists of large, long, green leaves that haven’t fully unfurled - all of which have distinctly silver hairs on them.
These hairs are the reason behind the name “White Tea”. Pai Mu Tan, like all of our Loose Teas, is packed fresh to order, thus ensuring its quality and consistency.
What’s more, there is a chance it comes with White Tea benefits. According to scientific research, beverages such as this one can promote weight loss while reducing diabetes risks.
Some even suggest it can enhance brain function and improve skin health. Whatever your reason for choosing White Tea - China Pai Mu Tan Tea, you’ve undoubtedly decided exceptionally well.
What is Pai Mu Tan Tea?
Pai Mu Tan comes from the Fujian province of China, a region long recognised for its exceptional Tea-growing conditions. Harvesting takes place when the Tea is still young and tender, which ultimately has a significant impact on its flavour.
Like any type of White Tea, the processing of the leaf is minimal to ensure it maintains its natural chemical structure.
The lack of oxidation, in particular, means that Pai Mu Tan contains a wealth of vitamins, minerals and other antioxidants - more so, in fact, than Green Tea. As such, it has become a popular choice among health-conscious individuals.
If you’re simply looking for a delicious cuppa, however, then worry not. White Tea - China Pai Mu Tan Tea, when brewed, is a true delight to the senses.

Pai Mu Tan White Tea Benefits
Although Pai Mu Tan contains several noteworthy antioxidants, one stands out from the crowd: Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). This particular chemical compound can, according to research out of Kingston University, London, work as an antiseptic, which in turn positively influences skin health.
Another Japanese study, meanwhile, recognised its ability to treat numerous inflammatory conditions. There is even a US-based clinical trial suggesting it can block the life cycle of hepatitis B! Until we know more, however, The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company does NOT endorse Pai Mu Tan for these potential White Tea Benefits. Instead, we await further evidence.
